Reclaiming the Media Narrative After Russian Intervention in Syria — by Russell O’Phobe

Reclaiming the Media Narrative After Russian Intervention in Syria — by Russell O’PhobeDear Friends and Colleagues,

You will recall that I wrote to you back in September with my Primer on the art of writing Russian scare stories. I had felt it necessary to write back then in order to make sure that you were all on-message, and to give you the confidence and the tools you need to maintain the narrative that many of us have been working hard to get across over the last couple of years or so.

And no mistake, much has been accomplished. I know that many of you have been labouring hard to ensure your readers are fed a steady diet of reports on “Russian aggression” and “Russian invasions”.
